Natural and un-natural phenomenom happen all the time. I am sure of it. Things happen for no apparent reason. We can’t explain them. Good things, bad things, funny things….red fish, blue fish…..
I truly believe that things happen for a reason. We either need to learn something, or be a part of someone else learning something. Really. Think about all the things that have happened to you in your life. Okay, maybe you don’t have time for that right now, but seriously, I think most everything that happens can teach us something.
So, the question is then….why do I keep meeting guys that are totally not right for me? Too young, too old, too far away, too…ridiculous, too crazy of a past, too unemployed…… Why can’t I meet someone that is: too attractive, too crazy about me, too rich, too great with kids, too handy with power tools, …..too wonderful? Maybe they wouldn’t be interesting in me…no, see that ‘too crazy about me” part? ha! Thought ahead, I did! Anyway, went to a singles dance tonight to meet women. Yes, you read that right. I wanted to meet other single women so I possibly make friends to hang out with! All my single…well, all my friends period, are male. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but…sometimes you just need a girls night out. They tend to lack the awkward….’should we make out’ part of the evening. And, it doesn’t matter if your girlfriends are shorter than you are, not cute, overweight…in fact, all those things could be a plus!
I went out of my way to make a friend….a girl was sitting in her car waiting before the dance started so I went to her window and made friends. She said she was new and didn’t know anyone….liar! She knew most everyone there! sheesh…..oh well, we walked in together and then parted ways. I ended up at a table with three others, one female two men, playing scrabble. Which I pretty much won. After that, it was three guys and me playing UNO. then….the man in question and I talked the rest of the night. We sat and talked, stood and talked, danced and talked….and then I drove him home and we talked for two more hours. Yes, I am typing this with my eyes shut. so tired.
So? you ask? What is the problem? I’ll tell ya. He is not even a member of the church. He has the most colorful, interesting, non believable past I have EVER heard. I mean, he beats crazy Christiansen out of the water, no contest! Earrings, tongue ring….you name it. Well, no tatoos, but he wants them.
He is a sweet guy and very entertaining, but….good grief. What is the point I am supposed to be getting here? The last guy I met that wanted my number was a reformed drug dealer (same here!) and too young. (well, by some people’s standards….I don’t really have a problem with it….)
I wonder if these new acquaintences are supposed to help me deal with Mae and her issues? I don’t know…..I do know (I think) that it would be awesome to meet someone that would, could, be a possiblity for me. sigh….maybe I”m just supposed to stay single.
Whatever…..I am pooped!!
